The DVSA notes that it takes on average 45 hours of professional tuition combined with 22 hours of private practice to learn to drive. They also note that learners who prepare in this way gain more confidence and experience, perform better on the test and go on to be safer drivers. †
Many people are reluctant to allow a learner driver to practice in their car as the cost of adding them to their existing insurance may be high or they worry about losing their hard earned no claims bonus in case of an accident under supervision.
Collingwood Insurance Services give the learner driver the chance to get the private practice they need with a dedicated learner driver insurance policy in their own name and no risk to the owners own insurance.
Collingwood can insure parent’s, relatives or friend’s car or learners own vehicle on either a short term or annual basis. (as specified on the policy)
Cover extends to private practice, driving lessons and the driving test. (terms and conditions apply)
